McLean wrote Vincent, also known as Starry, Starry Night, in the fall of 1970, while he was working for the Berkshire School District. He was living in the Sedgwick House, a beautiful Federal style house in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. The inspiration came to him one morning while he was sitting on the veranda looking at a book about Vincent Van Gogh. As he studied a print of Van Goghs painting Starry Night, he realized that a song could be written about the artist through the painting....

Launched in 1925, WSM became one of the most influential broadcasters in American history. While the "Grand Ole Opry" became its best known show, WSM's pop music and public affairs programming elevated it to the top tier of NBC's national network. Meanwhile, its staff laid the ground for Nashville's music industry.

The truth was one of the most powerful and prolific weapons used in WWII. By distorting, suppressing, or releasing it, morale fluctuated and battles were won and lost. Radio was a primary vehicle for the dissemination of information, both true and false, and played a significant role in WWII. Similarly, propaganda played its own major role in the war and in truth. Radio was used to propagate, but eventually employed the technique of propaganda through advertising.

CRUISIN' THE FIFTIES AND SIXTIES, is a year-by-year recreation of pop music radio during the years 1955 through 1970. Each album is not just a collection of the top pop music of a particular year, but a total recreation by a top disk jockey (of that year) doing his original program over a major pop music station. That means actual commercials, promotional jingles, sound effects,...
